We are an experienced Nominee Shareholder provider offering a discreet, professional service. All our Nominee Shareholders are UK citizens, we can also provide exclusive nominees.
In the United Kingdom, it is a requirement of company law that information on the company officers and company shareholders must be registered in the public files of the Companies Registry, (such as: name, address, occupation, and date of appointment).
There are often circumstances where company owners or shareholders prefer not to divulge their ownership of shares and decide to keep these confidential. Such reasons might include commercial sensitivity issues or simply the desire to maintain their own privacy.
Our Nominee Shareholder services ensure the company owner retains control, but the nominee shareholder name is filed with the Companies Registry so that anyone performing a company search will see the nominee shareholder name on the company records and not the owners, providing anonymity for the owner.
By integrating our nominee shareholder service with our nominee secretary services, we can comprehensively & confidentially maintain all your essential company records ensuring good standing with Companies House.
